  • Free (non-members) / Free (members)

Introducing our 'Exploring Norwich' Series!

We are unlikely to be able to reinstate our live guided tours programme any time soon, so we thought that we would introduce a series of videos which would take viewers through Norwich landmarks from a particular perspective.

The series also complements the series of self-guided walking tours which can be downloaded from our website.

Celebrating Norwich's Architectural Heritage of the Future

  • Open to all
  • Free (non-members) / Free (members)

Join Vanessa Trevelyan as she reflects back on previous centuries and looks at the modern buildings that we hope will be the architectural heritage of the future, many of which have won Norwich Society Design Awards.

This year the Society is collaborating with the Norfolk Association of Architects and Civic Voice in the 2021 Design and Craftsmanship Awards, and this talk includes some of the nominations for these most recent awards.

This is a version of the talk given for Heritage Open Days 2021.
